Re: belt replacement


You are correct there are 2 belts.
They can be tricky to replace most shops will state they cant be replaced & you require new clutch.
So try this site for manuals on how to remove clutch unit & replace both belts they are very good with lots of high quality pics.

I have a DC17 Animal and when the brush roller is activated, there is a loud screeching sound. I tried replacing the belt, but that didn't remove the screech. The sound is definitely coming from the...

Hi, the first thing to check is the bearing at the end of the brush bar, take the belt off and spin the brush round with your hand to see if it makes a noise. Check the belt to see if there is any teeth missing off the belt or brush, then start the motor up without the belt or brush on that will tell you if it's the motor or bearing...

Brushbar not rotating but vacuum has suction - belt not broke

At the point where the shroud is around the drive belt of the motor there is a screw that has to be remeoved. It is accessible through a hole in the housing that is inset about 3 1/2 inches. Once this is removed along with the 2 screws at the base of the clutch housing, the shroud can be removed. Interestingly enough, though, I cannot figure out how to replace the brush belt even though I feel the clutch is the broken piece. Anyway, a new clutch with belts runs about 35-60 USD.

I changing the belt


Not sure why you claim clutch belts cant be changed because they can.
The DC04 DC07 DC14 all use the same clutch unit if you cant get the belts from your local vac repair shop look on Ebay they are on there.
The special tools are torx screwdrivers & if replacing both belts you will require circlip pliers.

How to replace both belts in manual form can be found here

Broken belt


If you cant easily see how to replace the Belt then I think your Dc07 has A clutch unit.

This type of Dc07 has 2 belts one from motor to clutch & the second belt goes clutch to brush roller.

You will need to remove the clutch unit completey from the machine in order to replace the belts, Its alot to explain so try this site it has service manuals covering this.

Dyson DC07 drive belt replacement


The other end of the drive belt the part you cant see goes to a clutch.
The clutch unit has 2 belts one is clutch to motor the second is clutch to brush roller.
You obviously look after your machine because you say you have had no problems with belts or clutch for 5 years.
Both belts & clutch can be worked on but its alot to explain so look at this site for service manuals.

Remove sole plate and beater bar.
Remove control knob by prising between yellow plastic side of knob and casing using wide bladed screwdriver.
There three torx headed screws holding the clotch assembly in place. Two are visible but the third is accessed via a circular access holein the main casing.
When these three screws are removed the clutch assembly can be pulled out. the thinner belt driven by the motor needs easing over the motor shaft.
There are two screws holding the end plate onto the clutch assembly. remove these, twist the end plate and remove. note where the fibre clutch plate and the metal plate fit and replace this belt.
On opposite end prise off spring washer and this assembly comes off the reveal the belt.

Refitting is the reverse.
Have a look on you tube and type in replacing clutch on Dyson DC4 as there is a 10 minute vidio that is quite good!!
Hope this helps!!!!!
